Do Peruvians eat llamas?
In the Andean plateau, llama meat is usually preserved by drying it in the sun. To this day it is an important source of protein. You should also try it with olluco (a root vegetable), as charqui (jerky), or with rice, a nourishing daily classic.
Is Peruvian food healthy?
“Without us knowing, Peruvian food is filled with superfoods. It’s being healthy without trying too hard.” Indeed, many foods we’ve come to call “superfoods” originated in Peru. Superfoods native to Noriega’s homeland include quinoa, maca, camu camu, purple corn, a fruit called aguaje, and pichuberry.
